How do I make a solar charger that would have multiple usb ports on it for charging multiple devices at the same time? Answered

I'm going camping with some friends and would like to make a cell phone / device charging station that could accomodate as many as 5 cell phones at one time.  Any ideas on how to do it? 


Wired in parallel so you don't get voltage drops from one to the next. You will need to have a solar panel which can supply at least 2.5 A (500 mA per USB). You'll probably need a current-load balancing circuit, for which Google Is Your Friend.
